Summer is just around the corner. No, literally, it is one week away. For many of you Lafayette residents, summer means VACATION. (Not for me though. I have to move and start a big girl job immediately). If you are going on vacation and have a dog or cat at home that you can’t take with you, I may have come across a couple of solutions.
For you cat lovers, I have mentioned this before. All Cats is a local boarding, grooming, and pet supply center only for cats. Cats relax and enjoy their own luxury cat condo. There is even a cat friendly play center. You don’t even need to bring items from home because All Cats supplies it all to make your cat’s stay purrfect. The cost is only $10 for daycare service and $20 a day for overnight boarding. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Now dog lovers if you are wanting to vacation this summer, you might want to wait until June because that is when Pooch Palace will finally be open. This “resort-style dog retreat” creates a luxurious and peaceful experience for dogs whose owners can’t take care of them while traveling. Each dog gets his/her own bedroom with his/her own TV that is programmed to a special channel that helps dog anxiety. Each room has a web camera so owners can always check up on the pup. There is also grooming and training along with a large area for exercise. An overnight, all-inclusive stay is $45 per night. Sounds like a great deal.
For those of you who are staying in the area for the summer, there are a lot of awesome events going on.

As always, volunteering at the shelters is welcome. Some just require a bit of paperwork first.
